De jeugd van tegenwoordig

Door Niels Huijbregts, 25 July 2007

Kids today. They have no sense of shame. They have no sense of privacy. They are show-offs, fame whores, pornographic little loons who post their diaries, their phone numbers, their stupid poetry—for God’s sake, their dirty photos!—online. They have virtual friends instead of real ones. They talk in illiterate instant messages. They are interested only in attention—and yet they have zero attention span, flitting like hummingbirds from one virtual stage to another.

Mooi artikel van Emily Nussbaum in New York Magazine over de generatiekloof tussen de digitale generatie en de mensen die te oud zijn om daartoe gerekend te kunnen worden. Met opmerkelijke suggesties:
